Bill would level the adoption playing field

GayAdoptionAbstr1By Jessica Flores | Fox 10

A new Arizona bill could change adoption laws in the state, it would put straight couples and same sex couples on the same playing field.

Currently the state’s law gives preferences to homes with a mother and father.

Before same-sex marriage was legalized, gay couples couldn’t legally adopt together as two parents, and now they can.

Some lawmakers say there’s still old language on the books that discriminates against same-sex couples when it comes to adopting. Supporters of the law say heterosexual homes is the best option for kids. Opponents say any loving home is a good option for kids.

FOX 10’s Jessica Flores reports on the bill.
